As the automotive industry continues to recover from the effects of the devastating floods at the end of last year, PROTON has added another achievement to its highlights to begin 2022. Last week, it was the Proton X50 that resumed production and now, the Proton X70 has started rolling down the assembly line in Tanjung Malim for the first time this year.
“The disruption caused by the floods has hit our vendor community hard and affected production schedules. PROTON is working together with them to quickly restore supply lines but it’s a painstaking and time-consuming process. The resumption of Proton X70 production is the next step in our progress as we seek to get back to assembling all our models in the shortest possible time” said Roslan Abdullah, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, PROTON.
Launched in 2018, the Proton X70 was the first SUV to be added to the company’s line-up. Offering an unparalleled combination of features including voice recognition, a class-leading in-cabin air filtration system, advanced driver assist systems, and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, it has been the best-seller in its segment for three consecutive years and is of the stars of PROTON’s range.
“The Proton X70 is one of the main pillars of our range. Attracting strong interest from customers both domestically and in export markets, it exemplifies the leap forwards PROTON’s products have taken in recent years and will continue to play a major role in our success for years to come,” added Roslan Abdullah.
